Did you know?

Deal receives one of the lowest per-pupil allocations in DCPS. So your generous tax deductible donations are critical for Deal. Funds are especially needed for important programs happening in the first weeks of school. So far this year, your donations have supported:

  • science supplies

  • mindfulness training for teachers

  • planners for 6th graders

  • supplies for 8th Grade IB projects, arts and theater

Funding is also used for technology, after-school clubs, professional development, assemblies for students and staff...the list goes on!

If you are interested in speaking with specific teachers, you are encouraged to contact them to schedule a conference. When you arrive, you will report directly to your child’s homeroom teacher.
